But by the 1860s, its Swedish-speaking society and cultural institutions were confronted by zealots of "Finnishness" (and a swiftly growing Finnish population) that demanded their rightful place in the sun. George C. Schoolfield's book portrays the many transformations that took place in an increasingly bilingual environment (where, ultimately, the street signs became trilingual!). The national-romantic passions led, in the fin-de-siecle and later, to a remarkable outburst of creative activity - the music of Sibelius, the painting of Edelfelt and Gallen-Kallela, the architecture of Saarinen and Sonck, the literature of Tavaststjerna and Eino Leino. The political and social tensions culminated in Finland's independence, on December 6, 1917, and the bloody Finnish Civil War of 1918, in which C.G. Mannerheim, a former Czarist calvary general, emerged as the leader of the victorious Whites

Young Rilke and his time by George C Schoolfield( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although Rainer Maria Rilke and his work have been much studied and written about over the past century - as befits the perhaps most important German-language poet of modern times - certain aspects of his early life and career have been neglected or are in need of a fresh look. Accordingly, this book investigates Rilke's life and career from adolescence until the verge of thirty. Here the reader finds the hysterical, harried tutee clinging to Valerie von Rhonfeld; the clever, supercilious, and anxious stroller through Prague of 'Larenopfer;' the narcissistic diarist preening for Lou Andreas-Salomé in Italy and elsewhere; the priggishly high-minded but lethal reviewer of German-language literature; the devoted but delusional presenter of Nordic letters. A final section focuses on thirteen poems or poem clusters composed between 1892 and 1900 and mostly left untouched by Rilke scholarship. While depending heavily on the evidence of the texts themselves, the present author allows himself to conjecture about, for instance, the traces left by the boy's hasty training in Latin; his knowledge - or ignorance - of Czech national opera and popular literature; the genesis of some willfully 'decadent' poems; his odd literary likes and dislikes; and so on. From this 'Wirrnis' (confusion, muddle; one of his favorite words), the young Rilke emerges as a dogged self-educator, and, for all his laments and insecurities and languorous poses, a figure of distinction, gifted with an almost preternatural verbal inventiveness and recondite energy. George C. Schoolfield is emeritus professor of German and Scandinavian Literature at Yale

New poems by Rainer Maria Rilke( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rainer Maria Rilke, the most famous (and important) German language poet of the twentieth century--a master to be ranked with Goethe and Heine--wrote The New Poems of 1907 and 1908 in transition from his late-nineteenth-century style. They mark his appearance as a lyrical, metaphysical poet of the modernist sensibility, often using traditional forms like the sonnet to explore the inner essence, the deep heart, of things--often, quite literally, things. Influenced by his time spent as Rodin's secretary, Rilke turned to quotidian life and sought to artistically redeem it in all its possibilities. His exquisite use of meter and rhyme marks him as a "formalist" and yet a contemporary of Eliot and the later Yeats, so this translation follows, as closely as English allows, the formal properties of the original poems, in a line-for-line version, while trying to capture the spare diction and direct idioms of modernism"--
